We offer two qi gong or yoga classes each day in our studio, exclusively for our hotel guests. The early morning class begins at 7:00am and the late morning begins at 11:00am everyday.
We encourage all guests to attend both of these classes each day during their stay at La Negra. Attendance is not obligatory but recommended. Both of the classes are intended to be dynamic. The specifics of each class will vary depending on the individuals that comprise our guests, their energies and their experiences and the yogi's disposition and intentions. No prior experience is required.
The early morning class is intended to start your day and to align your body and mind in order to surf and otherwise take advantage of the rare and precious opportunity of another day in this life. The early morning class runs approximately 50 minutes.
The late morning class is intended to be a complete practice. The late morning class runs approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
We recommend and invite you meditate daily during your stay at La Negra. We practice vipassana mediation. In order to encourage your practice, there is one hour of peace and quiet during each day reserved for meditation at La Negra.
Please appreciate that we cannot control street noise and other human activity in the surrounding area. You are invited to practice meditation in the studio. We believe practicing meditation in a group is beneficial. However, if you prefer to meditate alone, please do so in your room, or anywhere else you find comfortable. Please be as quiet as possible during these hours and do not disturb your fellow guests.
Vipassana meditation does not require any prior experience or special knowledge. For those of our guests that have never meditated before, we consider it an honor to provide you the opportunity to begin a lifetime of practice. The only prerequisite for meditation at La Negra is your desire to experience compassion and liberation.
Meditation Hour is 3:00pm-4:00pm daily.
Our studio is open to our hotel guests for their use and enjoyment during their stay at all hours when it is not in use for a scheduled class or meditation hour. We invite you to warm-up, cool-down, practice yoga or other conscious movement, stretch, workout, relax and roll around on foam rollers in our studio, which is located upstairs with and easily accessible to all guests. Yoga mats, blocks, elastic straps, cushions and foam rollers are provided.
The studio is open during the daylight hours.
